Lakewood United Methodist Church
Family Promise (of Greater Denver) is an organization of churches and synagogues in the Denver area that provide temporary shelter and support for families experiencing homelessness. Throughout the host week, the LUMC congregation--assisted by other fantastic partner groups--will provide food, beds, laundry services, van transportation, etc. **We will be hosting families for 2 weeks this rotation to help fill in a gap in the FP host schedule. Thanks for volunteering! We'll need all the help we can get!**
The evening host will arrive at the church at 5:30 and stay till 8pm. The host will help the dinner providers set up for dinner, eat with the guest families, and help clean up after dinner (and run the dish washer). Sometimes the families hang out in the common area after dinner, sometimes they head off to their bedrooms. The evening host will provide childcare on Monday evening after dinner, when the parents attend their class.
